Stopped in to see what that had today and ended up having a dozen oysters on the half shell for lunch. Oysters were great. Excellent price 12.99 for dozen. I had James River oysters . I have had their fried fish lunch also. Very good.

I absolutely love the shrimp po boys. On Tuesday you can get 2 for 11.99. You get to good sides to go with it .

Been going here for take-out since it opened couple years ago, if only for the slaw. It's out-of-this-world . . . no make that out-of-this-universe! Plus I really take a shine to the whole fish there, especially the yellow-tail snapper. Yesterday's YTS was gigantic. Never seen one so huge. Usually they're way smaller and grill well and perfect for two.... More

Most trusted seafood I know of in Knoxville. There are seafood counters in most markets but I'm not confident in their knowledge and professionalism. No such problem at Shrimp Dock. Service sometimes slow, but acceptable. Advice good.

Until Whole Foods opened up a store in Ktown, this was absolutely the go-to place for fish . . . steaks, filets, and very often whole, i.e., yellow tail snapper. The slaw reigns supreme here! Never, ever, tasted a better recipe anywhere . . .

We like to come here for fresh fish that is reasonably priced. If there is any drawback service seems to be slow; however, that is expected with the great meal that is reasonably priced.

Really fond of this of this place. Combo of the cool-guys staff and the good selection of both fresh and frozen fish, soups, gumbos, and fish pies. And they have frozen baby octopus!

Probably the best place in Knoxville to buy fresh seafood includes fish, oyster, clam, shrimp, etc, as well as some frozen duck and poultry meat. It is also a great place to have seafood lunch.

Great seafood for the area, can't compare to most costal seafood shops but everything is fresher than most other places in the Knoxville area. The shrimp po boy sandwich has way too much bread for the small amount of shrimp that is on it.
